Award-winning poet and teacher Arisa White, author of the new collection You’re the Most Beautiful Thing That Happened, discusses poetry, race, and the body politic with National Book Award recipient Robin Coste Lewis (Voyage of the Sable Venus). FREE 

“In verse that is exhilarating and unexpected, Arisa White writes of race, of women loving women, of these all too human bodies we wear, of cities, of landscape” —cultural critic Roxane Gay

"Altogether new, open, experimental and ground-breaking, Robin Coste Lewis privileges real life in all its complications, surprises and triumphs over the frames that have locked down the scale of black womanhood.” —Claudia Rankine
